Canon EOS 7D Mark II Sensor Review and Test Results

By on

DxOMark published their sensor review and test results for the Canon EOS 7D Mark II digital SLR camera which is currently body only priced for $1,799 at Amazon.

Canon EOS 7D Mark II sensor review shows the camera scored a point of 70 and ranks behind some older, smaller Micro-Four-Thirds sensors which is a little discouraging.

The Canon 7D Mark II offers a color sensitivity at 22.4 bits is good but remains behind the best in class, while the dynamic range at base ISO is also lower. The DSLR performs on par with rivals at higher ISOs, with an ISO score of 1082 in the low-light category.

Even the DxOMark score is low for the Canon’s new flagship APS-C DSLR, on the other hand the camera has very good reviews and you can also see the tutorial videos too.

The Canon EOS 7D Mark II features a 20.2MP CMOS sensor, Dual Digic 6 processors, next-generation Dual Pixel AF, 65 all cross-type points, 10fps max burst speed, max ISO of 16000 and built-in GPS. You can download the Instruction Manual and the AF-Setting Guide Book.

From DxOMark conclusion:

On paper, the Canon EOS 7D Mk II looks to be a solid choice for sports and action photographers, but its sensor performance is somewhat behind the best in class, at least at low ISOs. Relatively high noise, less discriminating color, and below-average DR at base ISO all continue to hold back Canon sensors against rivals, but that’s not the case at higher sensitivities. In fact, when light levels fall, the Canon EOS 7D Mk II performs competitively, even surpassing rivals slightly. If Canon could only address performance at base and low ISO, the EOS 7D Mk II would make a thoroughly convincing all-round choice, but in this category the Sony A77 IIlooks to be the more compelling option.
